BP awards pipeline contract for Nam Con Son gas project

By OGJ editors


HOUSTON, June 3 -- BP Pipelines Vietnam BV and BP Exploration Operating Co. Ltd. let contract to BJ Process & Pipeline Services (BJPPS) to provide pipeline commissioning and testing services for the BP Nam Con Son gas project in Viet Nam.

BP serves as operator of the $1.3 billion Nam Con Son integrated gas-to-power project now under construction off the southern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau. The project entails the development of the Lan Tay and Lan Do natural gas fields on Block 6/1, construction of a 400 km pipeline to bring the gas ashore, and a gas-fired power station. The project also involves the construction of an offshore steel production platform and an onshore gas processing terminal.

The new BP platform is 360 km off Vung Tau, with the primary pipeline surfacing with a safety valve at Long Hai, continuing 8 km over land to the new terminal at Dinh Co. BP will operate the platform, pipeline, and terminal on behalf of its partner firms: Petrovietnam, India's Oil & Natural Gas Corp. unit ONGC Videsh Ltd. and Conoco Inc.

BJPPS will deliver related pipeline commissioning services, which will include cleaning and hydrotesting. Triethylene glycol will be used to simultaneously dewater and condition the export pipeline for gas transport, BJ PPS said.

Separately, BP Pipelines let contract to European Marine Contractors—a pipelay subcontractor for BJPPS—to deliver flooding and gauging services on the export and interfield pipelines.

Primary management for the new gas project will be carried out in Ho Chi Minh City, with BJ Services's (Singapore) office in Viet Nam servicing the project from the BJPPS network of bases in Dubai, Singapore, and Perth. BJPPS has already started work on the engineering phase of the contracts, it said.
